Family Reunions Are a Favorite at The Painted Pony Resort

What a fantastic place for a family Reunion or Anniversary Celebration!  No one to share the pool with and all areas exclusively for you and your family.

Whether it is watching the game in the living room on the big screen TV, hanging out by the pool, or exploring the estate each family member can pursue their own interests in a communal atmosphere.

Combined with day trips to various locations, family members can create their own vacation within a reunion.


Visit The Chiricahua Desert Museum, Rodeo, NM

Bob and Sheri Ashley of The Chiricahua Desert Museum in Rodeo, NM (NM's premier rattlesnake educational outreach and exhibit) have a fantastic Museum and can also provide the family educational events. 

Careful scientific observation, highly entertaining anecdotes, a passion for rattlesnakes, unique insight and commitment to coexistence with wildlife make this museum a must see while at the Painted Pony. 

Ashley maintains the largest and rarest collection of rattle snakes in the history of the State of New Mexico, encompassing a very diverse group of nearly 100 animals. The Museum also has a large and unusual art collection and a great gift shop.
